Three trials stand between Lera and exile. Unless the training kills her first.
Quint magic has never chosen a human before, and the Elders Council is convinced Lera is a mistake.
When the quint refuses to be cleaved apart, the enraged elders give them a choice: exile from Lunos or demotion to the lowest of trainees. Subject again to the humiliations and deadly trials they endured centuries ago, the males now face a new challenge—training Lera to survive.
River, Shade, Coal, and Tye will do whatever it takes to keep Lera safe. But Lera will do whatever she must to keep them together—even if it means putting herself in mortal danger.
Stepping up to the well-worn line, River spread his feet shoulder width apart, bowing his head respectfully while the others fell into line beside him, Shade and Tye flanking Leralynn. The girl was most comfortable with the shifters, who were healthier for her than River could ever be.
River’s heart pounded against his ribs, fire simmering in his veins and rising to his face. He longed to grab the girl and shake her. Or kiss her. Or both.
Shade’s breath grew harsh, his heart racing so fast that River could see the vein pulsing on Shade’s neck. “You are hers as much as I am,” the wolf shifter murmured nonetheless as Leralynn headed right for her bedchamber. “And you can fix your own messes.”
Coal’s hand shoots out, grabbing Malikai’s wrist. “Keep your quint here, Third Trial,” he says in that velvet-soft voice that promises painful things to come. “I wish to train.”
“Mortal?” Coal’s confused growl is the most wonderful sound I’ve heard in a long time. The male’s eyes open, wild and pale blue, surveying the room, the light, me. Bracing himself with his hands, Coal sits up roughly. “Why are you in my bed?”
Coal turned to River, gripping the commaner’s wide gray eyes. “I need you to trigger every bloody memory I have of Mors,” Coal said, holding out his wrists as his heart pounded. “Bind me and give no quarter. And then…and then don’t let me bloody kill you, because I’m going to fight like hell itself.”
“I don’t wish to detain you,” Klarissa says, smiling so convincingly, a stranger might call it kind. “I simply saw you and thought it appropriate to admit firsthand to you that I was wrong. I confess that I believed the council should have pressed harder to sever you from the quint, but in retrospect, your presence here is one of the most valuable lessons for all the Citadel. I imagine that after witnessing the destruction of such a powerful quint, none of the others in history will consider repeating the same mistakes. And we have you to thank for it.”

Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can’t allow—or resist.
Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera’s life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master’s advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out… Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera’s barn.
River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother’s loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to… a female. A mortal female.
Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing—a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone… especially for Lera herself.
